Longtime fan of the G.I. Joe property, El Mayimbe from Latino Review reports that Paramount may have possibly narrowed down the list of potential G.I. Joe sequel directors to three names.  I will admit, all three names mean nothing to me, but some of their work does.
On this list are Jaume Collet-Serra, F Gary Gray, and Jon Chu.  While none of them are really household names, Collet-Serra has helmed some financial successes including House of Wax, Orphan, and the upcoming Unkown with Liam Neeson is already showing some promise.  F Gary Gray seems to be the best name on the list, having a great action film resume, including The Italian Job, The Negotiator, and Law Abiding Citizen.
And then there’s Chu.  Jon Chu’s most notable films to date are Step Up 3D and Justin Bieber, Never Say Never.
No, I’m not kidding.
Hey, I know I’m a big fanboy and everything, but if Chu somehow ends up directing the G.I. Joe Sequel, I think that just might push me off the bus.  We’ll see.  These are all rumors for now, take it for what its worth.  El Mayimbe does have his finger on the pulse.
